It allows your domain registration to be renewed on an automatic basis. If you register your domain name with SMG, we will email and call you when your domain needs to be renewed so it never unknowningly expires.
This means you protect your business from someone else stealing your domain name if you have let your domain registration run out.
This is a free service (normal registration rates apply for renewal of your domain name).
